UTAG/NLC In Court On Thursday As Public Universities Face Closure


The National Labour Commission (NLC) and the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) will appear in court on Thursday.

The NLC has sued UTAG for failing to comply with a directive to call off its strike.

UTAG members across the country have laid down their tools to demand better conditions of service but the NLC declared their action illegal on January 13, 2022.

Giving an update on discussions held so far, the President of UTAG, Dr. Solomon Nunoo, said the government has not made any effort to meet with them for negotiations.

Dr. Solomon Nunoo who was speaking in an interview on Peace FM‘s morning show ‘Kokrokoo‘, said: “there has not been any negotiation govt has not made any offer and that is why this issue has landed in court. This means even if we call off the strike nothing will be done for us. Nothing shows govt is willing to do anything…”

“We are ready to negotiate and it’s up to govt to show their commitment…but on Thursday we will be going to court,” he revealed.
